Letter From An Unknown Woman (1948) (U)
FROM PAGE TO SCREEN 2023
Introduced by Francine Stock
A gentleman intent on fleeing a duel receives a love letter from a woman he has known his whole life, but never noticed. So begins one of the most gorgeous films in Hollywood’s golden era. With Max Ophul’s idiosyncratic roaming camera exploring the lush rendering of late 19th century Vienna, this exquisite melodrama of adoration is the epitome of ‘they don’t make ‘em like they used to’.
The course of our lives can be changed by such little things.

“Adapting for the screen, whether it be a novel, a stage play, a biography, a historical event or a newspaper article, presents its own particular problems, perhaps more technical, but in no way less intricate than writing an original screenplay. I’ve spent decades ruminating on these issues, without necessarily having reached any firm conclusions, though I do by now, I suppose, have a few tentative suggestions. I’m delighted at the opportunity to visit Bridport to be able to kick some of these suggestions around.”
